somewhere and maryland and new york city. here's the setup that the colder air beginning to make its push as it goes into the first half. sandy will begin to edge up into the carolinas. the cold air marching in. that will help connect with sandy. here are the two potential tracks, mike masco putting this graphic together. you can see the winds gusting. if we get that track into maryland, into delaware, that's the more concerning track for us here locally. perhaps, though, we'll get that more northern track which will bring it toward long island new york. there could still be coastal flooding. we'll have a winds wrapping around out of the west. that's going to pile up chesapeake bay. overall we'll have an impact no matter what. major storm potential, long duration event. we will see the crawl. we'll have wind and rain each of those days much the flood potential will be there. how much depends on the exact final track of the storm. we'll have a better handle friday into saturday. here we go 58 degrees, mostly cloudy. tomorrow, no big deal, cool and misty, mostly cloudy at 68. the next

] please come up and go to the mic. don't be shy. you only have the entire city watching. [ laughter ] only. >> good afternoon honorable supervisors and board of ethics commissioners. i'm kristin winn, district 6 youth commissioner and high school student. first and foremost i would like to thank the board of supervisors and board of education for holding this meeting. it's important for high school students and it's important for youth to graduate from high school with resources and for qualifications for going to usc or ucs. also recognizing there are many youth out there who don't know where or how to find their way to resources even if they wanted to. and with this new a-g requirement, students are able to graduate with a guarantee that they will qualify for csus and ucs, but it's very alarming to see there are so many disputes who are off-track on graduating. and i would want my peers to have the support that they need. so if there were more resources, like how these resources were able to help me. we need to make sure that all students have the opportunity, resources and suppor

-page report card for our entity would be. the sample before you are samples, the first one is what voters requested that the independent controller city service auditor do for parks. you can see it simplified to one page with parks that are clean and tide y and green, and those starting from the left, there were a lot of parks in disrepair when this started in '05, '06. but parks have really improved and become more clean and usable. that's a nice report card style. but the report card on streets and street cleanliness and graffiti and trash receptacles and trees is a little more detailed and quantitative. but it shows a multi-year trend and summarizes in one page if we wanted to see what the status and health and cleanliness of streets and sidewalks would be. these are both independent score cards, report cards that the controller's office is doing, the city services auditor the board asked them to do. taking that same theme, the city services advisory of the sfpuc thought we might want to consider that as a way to synthesize and distill it into a report card to rate payers on how

lyndhurst, ohio, i introduced the first property-tax rollback in the history of our city. we give tax relief to senior citizens and working families. i worked in a bipartisan fashion -- and we reconstructed the oversight to the workers' compensation investment fund. i worked in a bipartisan way to pass down the budget and try to keep young people in ohio. identified the exports with ohio and worked in a bipartisan way to manage the finances in the state of ohio where we have the highest rating on our bonds and investment and voluntarily cut our budget two years in a row. >> i would emphasize that he voted with his own party -- he voted with them 96% of the time. the only time he doesn't is if the interest group does not have a better offer. he voted against his leadership to satisfy the pay lenders and raised a lot of money. there is nothing in his elektra records that would show that he ever stands up to his political party on anything significant. >> is there one big area of disagreement you have with mitt romney, mandel? >> it is on defense spending. a lot of republicans say that y
